What Can University Presses Do?
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
I owe a huge debt to university presses. They published my books—knowing they would make no money on them. That selfless act won me tenure at an excellent university. My debt does not end there. I run a high-minded enterprise that broadcasts interviews with academic authors of new academic titles. The university presses send my little shop scads of free books. That selfless act wins us thousands of listeners. Nor does my debt end there. Being the overeducated type, I really like the books they publish. But I don't buy them because I don't need to: the university presses sell them to libraries that then make them available for free to me and everyone like me. More

In Supreme Court Filing, Libraries Say Decision in Wiley Suit Threatens Lending Rights
Publishers Weekly    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It is libraries' inability to acquire and lend ebooks that has grabbed the headlines, but according to an amicus brief filed with the Supreme Court on July 3, libraries' ability to lend print books is also under threat. The brief, filed in connection with the case Kirtsaeng v. Wiley & Sons, challenges a Second Circuit Court of Appeals decision from 2011 holding that the doctrine of first sale, the provision in the Copyright Act that allows any purchaser of a legal copy of a book or other copyrighted work to sell or lend that copy, applies only to copies manufactured in the United States.

Italian Art Historians "Find 100 Caravaggio Paintings"
Telegraph    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Experts said that after two years of rigorous analysis, they had found "remarkable similarities" between the newly discovered works, kept in a castle in Milan, and the known works of Caravaggio. But the announcement came out of the blue, caused an immediate storm in the art world, and raised as many questions as it answered. The historians apparently managed to keep their research a secret for two years, but their findings will be published in a lavish, two-volume, six-hundred-page ebook in four languages. More

The Pictures Generation, the Copyright Act of 1976, and the Reassertion of Authorship in Postmodernity
Art and Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In the three decades since artists Sherrie Levine and Richard Prince first exhibited their provocatively infringing appropriated photographs, inexpensive reproduction technologies and distribution systems have further thrown established conventions of authorial control into disarray, and at a seemingly exponential rate. Reactionary focus, then, to both the legal regulation of image production and the prosecution of violators has been rigorous. "Intellectual property" now figures significantly as a crossover category between legal and cultural discourse. Within the domain of art, appropriation since the Pictures generation might have been determined by artists to be a very risky endeavor. But while there has been the occasional lawsuit, there is nonetheless no doubt that the practice of appropriation in contemporary art is alive and well. More

Has Faculty's Role Eroded?
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The question recently posed by the National Labor Relations Board—whether the eighty or so full-time faculty members at Point Park University have a right to unionize—has captured the attention of the largest umbrella of unions in the United States, and of all the major faculty unions. Last week, the AFL-CIO and all three major faculty unions urged the NLRB to let the Point Park professors unionize and to reconsider the way a 1980 Supreme Court decision—NLRB v. Yeshiva University—that has largely blocked collective bargaining for private colleges faculty members. But one of the central issues on which the colleges and unions differ isn't about collective bargaining alone. It's about whether faculty rights at private colleges have changed in the thirty-plus years since the Yeshiva ruling. And the briefs demonstrate the sharply differing ways administrators and faculty leaders view developments over governance issues in recent years. More
